I was lucky enough to preview the House for Hope over the weekend, and encourage everyone to visit and tour the modern farmhouse designer showcase. Built by Carbine and Associates, with rooms designed by some great local talent, proceeds benefit various area children’s charities, and there is a lot of beautiful eye candy to take in during the tour!

You can see some of the snaps I took on my Instagram feed.

Tours are running through the 12th, and tickets are available HERE or at the gate.

Because I’m a food nerd, I always like sharing something fun from the kitchen each month, and today I’m excited to share my take on “The 108” from the Clock Bar in San Francisco. I tested it out on a few willing takers as an aperitif before a meal of Indian food recently, so if you’re a curry lover, I have your new cocktail!

This recipe will make a batch of 12-16 cocktails, depending on how generously you pour!

  • For Maple Masala Syrup:

    8 ounces maple syrup

    24 ounces of water

    3 ounces garam masala spice


  • For Cardamom Infused Gin:

    750 mL gin

    20 cracked green cardamom pods

    (Let gin steep with pods for 3 days)


    For Cocktail:

    1.5 ounces Old Raj Gin

    1 ounce maple masala syrup

    3/4 ounce cardamom infused gin

    1/2 ounce Lillet blanc

    Add all of the above into a cocktail shaker with ice, and pour into a chilled glass and top with

    1 ounce club soda, and garnish with a piece of star anise.

  • Enjoy!!



Until next time,
